How efficient different compilers work with the template-approach I
showed. I'll try to do that for the GCC 2.95 / 3.x and for the Intel
compiler (v7) at the weekend, but my experience with reading
x86-assembler is limited, so maybe I'll just run some benchmarks. As I
don't have/use Windows, I can't verify compilers for this platform.

Thanks. For the arguments that Paul gives, I'd also welcome comments
from the people that gave these arguments from their work/environment. I
still think that this shouldn't be ignored, but I just don't really
understand the reasons and I'd like to see these people comment on the
code I showed.
